Formula Rationale

Shen-Gem is a modification of Ginseng and Longan formula (gui pi tang), designed to strengthen the body while calming agitation. Ginseng, astragalus, atractylodes tonifies Qi. Salvia (dan shen) and amber (hu po) dispel stagnant blood. Vladimiria souliei (mu xiang) and cardamon (bai dou kou) move stagnant Qi. Poria (fu ling), White atractylodes (bai zhu), and ginger (gan jiang) dispel accumulated dampness. Zizyphus (suan zao ren), polygala (yuan zhi), and amber (hu po) act as sedatives, while also improving memory, concentration, and relaxation. Shen-Gem is for insomnia due to heart blood deficiency, whereby the patient has difficulty falling asleep.


Clinical Notes

1. Shen-Gem can be used as a general energy tonic for deficient individuals who are under stress. Often takes 3 to 6 weeks to see noticeable results at the recommended dosage, as this pattern is the result of long-term deficiency
2. Consider with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia


Additional Formulas

• For insomnia due to excess liver fire, consider Ease Plus and/or Coptis Purge Fire
• For symptomatic use in insomnia conditions and as a sleep aid, combine Shen Gem with Schizandra Dreams
• For insomnia or agitation with heart yin deficiency use Calm Spirit, during the day
